Hello and greetings from Nokomis. We came down Friday night and we’ve decided to stay until this evening. I’m working on wrapping up a huge project and for some reason I get more done down here.
Did you see his tongue sticking out, I mean, how cute is that?
I went for a walk on Friday morning and as soon as I got around the corner a peacock started following me. He twerked his way around me at least 5 times. I finally yelled, ‘No, Mr. Peacock, I am not having sex with you.’ (That’s what it means when they twerk like that and fan their feathers out.) I didn’t realize a neighbor was standing outside when I yelled it so that was embarrassing.
(I made the alt tag ‘twerking peacock’. I wondered what kinds of hits I’ll get from that, lol.
We packed up on Friday afternoon and left Clearwater around 7ish. MacGyver wanted to leave earlier I think but the Kid had mentioned that he sent something and it was being delivered on Friday so we I wanted to wait until it got there.
Y’all, I have the best kid in the World. Not because he thinks of his mother on her birthday and Mother’s day but because he’s kind, smart, successful and honest. Every day is Mother’s day because he makes me so proud. We talk at least 5 or 6 times a week and even though he is miles away, we are very close. I love that kid more than life itself.
And he does send the best presents too, in case you’re wondering.
Since I’m still taking some time off of running I decided to finish up the lawn down here in Nokomis. I finished mulching and weeding the entire yard, front and back and I built a grilling patio for MacGyver. Okay, actually I got sick of tripping over the grill and the Traeger smoker which were placed randomly around the backyard.
I didn’t take a picture of the patio because it isn’t quite the look I have in mind so I need to add some additional features and then I”ll show you guys.
On Mother’s day MacGyver and I went to dinner with his Mom and Dad. Before we left I noticed my shoes were a bit worn so I threw them out and put on a different pair. Somehow while we were at dinner I managed to rip the entire side of my sandal out.
Yes, I ruined two pairs of shoes in less than two hours! Apparently, I need to bring some new shoes down here…or go shopping. Which do you think I’ll do?
MacGyver and I have been really good about following this diet that we are on. Except that instead of a diet, we’re calling it a lifestyle change because it’s geared towards autoimmune issues and we really want to keep our bodies as healthy as possible holistically.
I haven’t been running and I didn’t have any other workouts planned while we’re down here but I’m pretty sure the moving of pavers and all the lawn work count for something. Actually, I’ve felt really healthy all week until this morning because at dinner, I ate all the things.
Instead of pizza, I ate steak and potatoes and chocolate gelato and lots of champagne. Oops. Oh well, I’m back on track this morning.
I hope that all of you Mother’s had a wonderful Mother’s Day and I hope that everyone had a blessed weekend spending time with those you love.
How healthy is your diet?
Do you follow a special diet or just watch what you eat?
Which do you think is worse, sugar or fat?
